Pitt Coaching Search: Paul Chryst Emerges As Favorite, According To Report

The Pittsburgh Panthers coaching search is starting to narrow down the candidates, as Wisconsin Badgers offensive coordinator Paul Chryst emerges as the favorite to land the job, according to a report by Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. If Chryst lands the job, he would be Pitt's fourth coach in just over a year.

Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst has emerged as the leading candidate to be Pitt's next head football coach, the Tribune-Review has learned.

Chryst, who interviewed with Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson on Saturday, could not be reached for comment.

Chryst has been the offensive coordinator of the Badgers since 2005. Under Chryst, Wisconsin has consistently been one of the best teams in the NCAA rushing the football. This past season with the addition of quarterback Russell Wilson, Chryst has called a much more dynamic offense that continues to put points on the board.
